DD,you might find this old thread of some interest,the conversation between LIA and bkidwell shed some light on the classical aspects of the GD.As for your "music history 101" we are lucky to have your insights,I would think you are our go to guy on all things classical.

I remember that . I haven't seen any thing form bkidwell in a while .He had some inside "under the hood" musical understanding that I lack . I was the "Classical Buyer" at the Tower Records El Toro/Laguna Hills location for 24 years, took the "Music History" courses in collage , but other than that, it is fan knowledge , and listening to people . I think people though I knew more that I did . You should have seen the look on the faces of my classical customers when I told them I had seen the Dead over 50 times !
Here is a link, I have posted before, that was my 15 min. of low-budget fame .http://artsblog.ocregister.com/2006/10/25/so-long-charlie-goodbye-tower/559/

I miss bkidwell's contributions here,as for you being our go to classical guy I think that article is all the proof we need to validate your classical music knowledge,you may not be a classically trained musician,but that doesn't mean you don't have a wealth of information to share.
